The last B&W of jerry and bob is from the free show they did in Central Park on 06-08-67. This was an unannounced event--well, frankly--who would they "announce" it to in 1967?
Besides--it was a Thursday! (And the Israeli army was firing on one of our warships during the infamous 6 day war). This was all in the middle of a two week stay in the city which culminated two days before the Monterey Pop Festival.

Luckily, word of this surprise gig was passed around Macdougal Street and sifted up to a friend who told two friends who told two friends until there was a mob of at least 200 hippies stinking up the Central Park Mall with their unbathed bodies, the alarming stench of which was covered up with billowing clouds of marijuana and incense.

The cops, being low on lysol spray and tear gas, let it ride. I'm sure there was a permit issued by some city clerk who thought this was a memorial service of some sort.

Anyway, the buzz was on, we gathered by the bandstand, and low and behold the scruffy little bastards defiled our beloved park with their profane sounds and loud screeching noises.

I can not remember the whole set list, but the first l.p. had only recently been released three months earlier, and the bulk of the tunes came from there. Certainly my favorite, "Cold Rain and Snow" was played as was "Golden Road," "Schoolgirl," "Morning Dew," and a rousing "Viola Lee Blues." They probably ended the show with the brand new "Alligator." The set lasted probably an hour, owing in part that the band was playing at the Cafe Au GoGo that evening.

Take me back there for just five minutes, please!!!

Boy, two emails in a week calling me out by name...guess all that rambling did pay off. And joined by CLIFF; better company is hard to come by.

Yes, the 23rd is a special show. Jerry's sound is especially good; August is one of my favorite months, though October and December do a lot for me. Of course, that's coming from an obsessive with only a year or two to worry about.

Enjoy. And, depending on the copy you have, figure out the origin of the 'filler' and fill us all in (see reviews and listen here at LMA if you don't have it). I have always thought the tone is just out of this world as he leads us through some unreal jamming over the first few songs...

No doubt your enjoying that nice reggae "dub" Golden Road Jam in Cryptical?

Or Jer's amazing monologue after the Thirteen Jam in Caboose (sorry Lou, this 13 Jam is amazing, try it again!)

It's not that I don't like prime-numbered metres. I'm just impatient for them to get out of the 13-beat straightjacket and on to the loosey-goosey rhythm of the closing NPC jam that so exemplifies why Phil is the greatest rock bass player there 's ever been.
